New Jersey Chapter Elections – Derek Smith, Platform Statement

Posted: Mar 01, 2018

During the 8 years I have been in safety, paying attention to detail has been a vital part in providing and implementing a strong safety program.  This includes the ability to communicate, document, and follow through on multiple platforms to execute a successful safety program.  This is paramount in developing a lasting safety culture as well.  These skills translate exceedingly well for a secretary, especially for an organization as strong and well run as the New Jersey American Society of Safety Engineers.  As your secretary, it would be a tremendous honor to aid in the continuous success while building on the great foundation previous and current executive board members have worked so hard to construct.  Thank you!

Rutgers School of Public Health is offering free training entitled, ” Expectations and Accountability for Managing Fall Hazards inMultiple Employer Construction Sites.”

Falls continue to be the leading cause of serious injuries and death on construction sites. Controlling contractors exert the most influence on multi employer job sites and set a general tone for work. This is often referred to as a “culture of safety.” The OSHA Susan Harwood sponsored fall prevention training will address:
1. Fall protection as a general condition on construction worksites
2. Examples of multi-employer roles & responsibilities
3. Fall protection training requirements
